"Beautiful country house with an exceptional level of service."
Myself and my partner stayed at Sandhill for a long weekend in November and the hosts were very accommodating from start to finish. They provided an excellent breakfast, provided a lot of local information and tips, and even provided us with two lifts in their car to help us access places in the area. The room was very clean and had beautiful views of the Tamar Valley. Read less

Their dog Fudge was an added highlight. He kept us company some evenings and was very affectionate and friendly.

The dog, obviously - from whom I got an excellent birthday cuddle. The house and grounds are lovely, and Mary & Andrew were excellent hosts.

No.
Response from Sandhill House Country Retreat:
Thank you so much for taking the time to go on-line and write such a kind review, though I have have to say I hate to think what would have happened had we not adopted dear Fudge! I will pass on your gratitude to him, although, I have admit I have not been to retrieve his favourite stick yet, so he's not too impressed with me, that's for sure. Just off to do that now! Many thanks again and we'll hope to see you again when perhaps you could both take a holiday to explore the stunning Tamar Valley

"il posto perfetto"
il soggiorno a Sandhill House è stata la prima tappa di una settimana di vacanza in Cornovaglia. Non poteva esserci migliore partenza per entrare nel clima vacanziero e di relax di cui avevamo bisogno. Il posto è veramente molto bello, la casa è una villa molto accogliente dove Mary ti fa sentire davvero a casa, e non un ospite qualsiasi. Camera molto curata, pulita e accogliente. Ottima colazione e un giardino meraviglioso in cui merita spendere qualche ora di ozio. Insomma, consigliatissimo! Read less

Sandhill House is the perfect countryside retreat to escape to and enjoy select bed and breakfast accommodation in the heart of the breathtaking Tamar Valley. Set in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and World Heritage Site, this select B&B Cornwall is the ideal gateway to explore the fantastic natural environment of the Tamar Valley and its world changing heritage, Dartmoor National Park, Bodmin Moor and historic Naval city of Plymouth. In addition Sir Francis Drake's hometown, Tavistock, is less 10 minutes drive and both the rugged north and sandy south coasts being just 30-40 minutes away. It is also ideal for exploring several National Trust properties, or for business if you prefer to avoid the big hotel chains.

Historic Sandhill House and the self-catering Tamar Orchard Barn are exclusive but relaxed retreats. The elegant and enchanting Grade II Listed Georgian home was originally the great mine owner, John Williams', 'Manor'. Recently restored to it's former glory with facilities including king size beds, beautifully appointed en-suites, free wifi, and Freeview TV/DVD and hospitality trays. There is a breakfast menu choice, offering the best ethically sourced produce, served in the Georgian dining room. Unfortunately, we are unable to accept dogs in the house because of our own, who are not on 'general release'.

The self-catering Tamar Orchard Barn, set in the 2 acre gardens, is dog friendly, offering total seclusion with a private, south facing garden. Please ring 07713 077877 to enquire.

With public transport, including the Tamar Valley Railway Line, at the end of the carriage drive, Sandhill House is the perfect place for walkers and cyclists and for those wishing to walk to the local pub! . Other local activities include tree-surfing and canoeing on the beautiful Tamar River.

Guests are welcome to relax in the tranquil, horticultural ‘treasure trove’ gardens. We regret extensive ornamental ponds make Sandhill unsuitable for children.
Environmental Statement
Sandhill House’s Carbon Footprint when built 550 years ago would have been very small indeed, with heat, light, and all food being produced locally. We realise we cannot achieve such a small footprint in the 21st Century but what we can do is minimise our impact, both locally and globally, on this world so that we can enjoy it today but also future generations will benefit from the well-being created by our beautiful surroundings. In order to reduce our impact and our guests at Sandhill House B&B and the self-catering Tamar Orchard Barn we have implemented the following: • Sandhill House is a member of CoaST Cornwall Sustainable Tourism One Planet Tourism Project www.coastproject.co.uk • We comply with environmental legislation and approved codes of practice including the Countryside Code • We support local food producers, restaurants, pubs and tourist attractions, along with shops and transport. We believe in buying locally wherever possible to reduce packaging and road miles.
